When other companies zig, Acura zags. For example, the Cadillac Catera zigged. So, in reaction, the Acura TL zagged. Get it? Good.

Now that we have that lesson over, take a good guess what the 2005 Acura RL did in reaction to its competition. Yep, you're right! It zagged!

The RL has a V6, not a V8 and super-handling all-wheel drive instead of just plain old all-wheel drive. Now that's what I call a zag!

If you want a lot of detail about SH-AWD, then watch this video. Technical jargon is the only jargon that John Davis knows!

Ok, sit back, relax, and zag along as we learn about what's new for 2k5.
